"Very versatile. Configuration required."
Works with lots of cameras. A ton of features such as: motion sensing with sensitivity you can customized; periodic shots that you can set the time for. More stuff I haven't played around with yet. Runs in the background or foreground.
Even with a setup wizard, it's not obvious how everything works the first time. You have to play around with the settings to figure out what everything does. Decent online help file but leaves most of the learning up to you.
I use this to record my dog during the day. It detects his movement and takes shots at specified intervals. Pretty fun. I found no other free software that can do all the things this one can. Might be just what you need.
